As part of the Orange Village programme, infrastructures have been improved in the village of Paravakar, in the north of the country. It is the second Orange village in the country.

In Armenia, the Orange village programme participates in the economic and social development of villages. This programme, which was launched in 2014 in Hartavan, now benefits those living in the small village of Paravakar. High-quality infrastructures have been built to improve the daily living standards of the villagers, focusing on agriculture, particularly the vineyards. The local cooperative was reinforced, with the purchase of a modern tractor and the refurbishment of the irrigation system to allow farmers to work in better conditions. This should help them to increase their income by around 30%.

The arrival of a modern tractor and the refurbishment of the irrigation system will make life easier for the farmers.

"Making life a little easier"

As part of the education project linked to the Orange Village programme, the village school has also been refurbished. A central heating system has been installed, and the school now has access to clean drinking water, like the rest of the village. Another very important point for us: one classroom now has computers so that the students, and villagers, can access new technologies. Finally, special care was taken to refurbish the village’s health centre. A drainage system was built and the insulation has been improved. The centre is available to people living in Paravakar but also those in neighbouring areas who do not have access to adequate healthcare facilities.

Both the students and the village’s residents will be able to take advantage of a room equipped with computers as well as a refurbished health centre.

"We are very impressed by the courage shown by the local villagers on a daily basis. We think that it is our duty to contribute to these people’s well-being, making life a little easier for them", stated Aleksandr Yesayan, Managing Director for Orange Armenia, during his visit to the village.
